When you take off the bottom case, and lift up the pcboard and lower touch screen, you'll see the ribbon cable connected there. It's held in place by a black connector that lifts up. Use something like your fingernail and life up on the black part until it releases (it shouldn't take too much pressure to lift it up. Once you do that, the cable pulls directly down and out.

Make SURE what when you put it all back together that you make sure to seat the ribbon cable back in there as far up as it will go. If you put it together and all you get is a bottom screen that flashes and it won't stay charging, I'm 99% sure that it'll be that connection isn't in there far enough.

I had to troubleshoot 2 of mine doing that recently. Found out that it was the cable that wasn't in there far enough. Once I put it in far enough, they worked like charms.

Ds lite top screen


Yes its fixable but it depends on what has broken.
There are two possibilities the small barrel hinge has broken, this is just a case of fitting a new one by opening the case, unscrew the light and gently pulling the top of the case away till you can change the barrel hinge.
The other one is the case has broken and is not holding the barrel hinge, can bodge it with some glue sometimes but most often you need a new case.

DS Lite Top screen is all white after replaced for new one


you should use a crystal casing because every time you open the ds the wires get messed up or put some thing on the hinge so the ds hinge will not get loose.

My hinge broke on nds


If you have a valid receipt nintendo will have to cover it under warranty. Provided it just snapped and is not broke because of bad handling.
Alternatively order a new case through eBay and just switch the old case with the new one.

Ds touch screen and main screen not working - connectors broken


if you would have sent it to me first I would have replaced the case for you and you wouldn't have had these problems, but I can still help you out. I have a white nintendo DS lite in stock that I had to replace the bottom lcd display in. I will ship to you for $90 and if you are feeling adventurous send me your parts and I will take off $10 since I have no clue what is broken and what is not, but to me it sounds like the bottom lcd, touch screen , and circuit board are trash.
Thanks

Broken Hinge


There are plenty of replacement cases available from a popular auction web site, if your proficient with a screwdriver and have a lot of patience then you should be OK. Take great care when refitting the top screen ribbon cable (and taking it apart in the first place), the WIFI arial cable is awfully fiddly as it needs to be threaded under the slot 1 cartridge mechanism and finally take great care refitting the bottom case as plenty of people have reported snapping the plastic part of the power switch when reassembling. I reckon a first attempt should take 1-2 hours so clear the dining room table and don't forget to buy a tri wing driver when you get your replacement case if you haven't already got one. Best of luck.

Nintendo ds - broken hinges


Try gripping them with a pair of long nose pliers and pulling them out. I'd advise a layer of cloth between plier teeth and rods, to stop them being gouged.

Nintendo ds hinge fix


Well, you can buy a hinge from a lot of places, but the wire that broke, you are going to have to try and fix the wire, get it connected again so that it will work. The only other solution is that you will have to send it in to get fixed.
